Maechee Khunying Kanitha Wichiencharoen

Maechee Khunying Kanitha Wichiencharoen

Her life is the path of sacrifice for women and children in distress. Because of the clarity of her mind and the purity of her heart, she inspired people to help others. She exemplifies the Thai national hertitage of kindness and generosity.

'Her pathway is most precisous and extraordinary. In the 80 years of her life, others recieved many blessings from sharing ideas with her, working together and learning from her. The contact encouraged others to develop greater insight and trust in themseleves, and thereby service humanity.'

Dr Suteera Thomson Vichitranonda, 2000

Sasakawa Women's Education and Training Center

On November 2, 1989, H.R.H Princess Soamsawli offically opened the "Narinkaruna Building" and presented a certificate of appreciation to Mr Ryoichi Sasakawa, the late chairman of the SASAKAWA Foundation, who generously provided funds for the construction and operation of the center.

Through the Women's Education and Training Center, APSW provides various courses to help clients develop vocational skills such as sewing, hair dressing, cooking, crafts, housekeeping, Thai Massage and even driving. In May 1989 the first training program was launched with the cooperation of the Department of Non-Formal Education.
